Killing Of Soldiers: Otti Jacks Up Bounty To N30M

The Abia State governor, Dr. Alex Otti, has jacked up the bounty placed on the killers of five soldiers in Aba, Abia State by unknown gunmen, to N30 million.

Recall that some unknown gunmen had, on May 30, killed five soldiers at Obikabia junction in Aba in Abia State.

The governor who earlier placed a bounty of N25 million on whoever can volunteer information that could lead to the arrest of the killers of the soldiers, said that the increase in the bounty became necessary following the donation of an additional N5 million by an indigene of the state based in the United States.

“Interestingly, the government has placed a bounty of N25 million and just yesterday, an Abia son, who also comes from Obingwa and lives in the United States, sent us N5 million to upgrade the bounty to N30 million.

“So I am happy to announce that the bounty has just been upgraded to N30 million, to encourage anyone that will have useful information that will lead to the apprehension of the criminals,” he said.

Otti further stated that the state government had also started working with the security agencies to ensure that such incidents do not happen again in the state.

He said that the government had been working round the clock to ensure that the state remained safe and secure.

“We also want to thank the intelligence service of the DSS, as they dispatched quite some people here to help us to unravel this case.

“We are very single-minded about it. We must fish them out and ensure that they get the message that this place is a no-go area for terrorists, killers, kidnappers and other criminals,” the governor said.
